My father has been suffering from acute kidney disease for a few years now. Unfortunately, he has not consistently listened to me or his doctors to take care of it. Now he is in chronic kidney failure and is finally paying attention. We are going to do the best we can to keep him off of dialysis and I will let you know how that goes. But the reason I am writing this is because just two months ago I managed to get my father quite well through herbs. I study herbal medicine and prescribed my father Cleavers tea and Queen Anne's Lace tincture for his kidneys and a chronic urinary tract infection. And the results were remarkable, I literally didn't recognize him. He lost so much weight that was just pure water. He was walking straighter and had a much brighter look in his eyes. He said he felt great and actually managed to walk seven miles to town when his car broke down. And he's sixty five! Once again, unfortunately he stopped taking the medicine and relapsed and that's how we find ourselves where we are now. From everything I understand dogs and humans have the same blood type and they can take the same herbs for the same problems just in smaller dosages according to weight. Maybe make a cup of the cleavers tea and soak their food in it and you wouldn't need much of the tincture maybe ten to fifteen drops in their water. I've done herbal remedies on my dogs with great results based on human recommendations. But I didn't mix prescription medicine with them so you should talk to your vet. But if they're recommending putting your dog to sleep. You might be better of just trying the herbs and dropping the prescriptions. Because evidently they don't really expect their medicine to work. Really hope this helps. I never post anything on forums but I know what it's like to lose a dog and I would like to do what I can to help.

I read an article about a person giving their pet (dog) doggy treats that were made in china and it died of kidney failure. In fact, a lot of people were having this same issue with their pets.

Dear Cary,
My friend is taking all the medications the doctors in Germany has described for him and they seem to be working fine. However, I was wondering if there is other herbal any other other a person with kidney failure has tried and worked for him/her. I have seen in number of sites people getting well with socking in the bath tub with a table spoon of vinegar!! it is Chinese way of dealing with this kind of situation. At this point even though he is not on dialysis, I am trying very hard to find anything that might help him before he gets their.

I am not sure if I know how to send a private message without your email add. and at the same time I would like to know what you have given to your dog.

Plse let me know how to do so. Thanks again. suhair

Hi Anonymous,
Doing some research about your question shows that many resources show that Apple Cider Vinegar is helpful for kidney issues. Unlike medicines, natural remedies are not federally tested for their effectiveness. Here is some information from the Web MD in regard to Apple Cider Vinegar http://www.webmd.com/diet/apple-cider-vinegar?page=3.

Here is a link to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse which may be helpful for you also http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/choosingtreatment/.

Good luck, let us know if you need more information.

Thank you the quick response. My family member is on stage 4 of renal disease and was wondering apart from medication, is there any herbal cure for prolonging kidney failure?

Hi Anonymous

I have a very young dog in stage 3 kidney failure. The disease is pretty much the same in dogs and humans, as are the meds and things to watch for. My vet is a holistic one, and I suggest you find a holistic medical practitioner in your area to work with your health care team so that each doc is aware of what the other is prescribing. Some herbals interact with prescription meds.

My dog is on several probiotics and other natural substances to help keep his kidneys functioning as efficiently as possible. He eats prescription food as well. If you'd like, I can give you a list of the substances in his supplements for you to take and discuss with the doctors. It seems to be improving my dog's bloodwork quite a bit. Send me a private message if you'd like this information.

The main thing to remember is that the doctors must all be aware of each supplement and med your family member is taking, natural or not. That way nothing interacts or accidentally makes things worse.

Good luck and thanks for writing.
